Currently in its 29th year, School is Cool is a community outreach effort managed and organized by CSU employees that provides backpacks and school supplies to K-12 students in Fort Collins, Wellington, Timnath and LaPorte, and to outlying mountain schools. Since 1992, School Is Cool has helped more than 48,000 children. Last year, the program assisted 2,614 students in 47 schools.
A $25 donation provides a brand-new backpack filled with an average of 13 grade-appropriate school supplies.
A signup form to volunteer is now available. All safety precautions will be practiced and enforced.
Donations are accepted throughout the year for this annual Colorado State University outreach project.
